Milwaukee Area Technical College: The Crossover Program.
Michels, L.
This descriptive report focuses on Milwaukee Area Technical College's Crossover Program, which was designed to help students who have demonstrated a low level of academic preparedness on their admissions placement test to improve their basic academic skills and choose a realistic program of study. The first sections of the report describe the Crossover Program, focusing on objectives; admissions procedures; the curriculum, which includes courses in communication skills, reading and study techniques, mathematics, and social studies; orientation; attendance and tardiness policy; and requirements for the successful completion of the program. The next section offers an evaluation of the program, including a profile of the academic and personal characteristics of the 534 students who entered the program in fall 1985; statistics on retention and on attrition by race for the 440 students in the program in fall 1984; results of a follow-up of 122 spring 1986 Crossover students which looked at students' majors, persistence rates, and grade point averages; and program enrollment data for 1981-82 to 1985-86. Finally, a series of recommendations concerning the program are presented. The agenda for the student orientation is appended. (RO)
